This is a guest review by Adam from our engagement and fundraising team.

Firebrand brewery was founded in 2012 in a converted milking parlour on the edge of Bodmin Moor, and they’re plainly proud of their Cornish roots – their logo is a fire-breathing chough.

Shorebreak is their first low-alcohol beer, and it’s a good one. The first sip hits and it’s full of flavour! There’s the hoppy tang you would expect from this type of beer and the follow-up of a citrus boost is in there too. The can says it’s full of tropical flavours, and I can definitely see why they’ve gone for that description. I don’t think it’s quite as light as claimed because of this – the hops and tang do hang around for a while – but it’s still refreshing and well suited to summer’s day. Oh, and you really can’t tell that it’s so low in alcohol.

The designers went for the hipster paper sticker around the can vibe and pulled it off nicely. The luminous lime green waves make the can stand out and give a sense of being by the Cornish surf! The whole colour-scheme is great, which for this type of drink is now probably a necessity, as so many other brands go for bold and bright too.
